For nearly forty years, the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine at UICOMP has been the forerunner in providing evidence-based mental health treatment, education, and prevention for the Greater Central Illinois area. The Center for Wellbeing aims to extend these services to professionals and professional organizations.

She earned a clinical master’s degree in counseling from Southern Illinois University and is certified in Mind-Body Bridging, CBCT® (Cognitively-Based Compassion Training), and Cultivating Emotional Balance. Her passion is to merge evidence-based psychology with the wisdom of contemplative practices. This combination allows her to help others enhance individual resilience through personal and professional counseling and skill building.
